MORGANTOWN, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say a 5-year-old boy has been fatally struck by a school bus in south-central Kentucky.

State police spokesman B.J. Eaton told the Daily News in Bowling Green (https://bit.ly/1KM3Gte ) that police were called around 3:20 p.m. CDT Monday to the scene on Kentucky 70 about four miles west of Morgantown.

Eaton says the child was hit at his scheduled stop after the Butler County school bus stopped in front of a residence to let children exit.

Butler County Coroner Marty Jones says the child was pronounced dead about 15 minutes later. The boy’s name hasn’t been released.
